Computers for Africa

Computers for Africa refurbishes used computers, networks them, and ships ready-to-set-up labs to non-profit organizations in Africa. Following a policy of Generous Excellence, we send the best we can to the most disadvantaged groups, generally youth and women, as well as organizations that work for positive social development. We have defined our mission and guiding values as we work toward goals that bring practical, measurable improvements to African communities.
